TERBLANCHE, Marius D.. Yahweh is the creator of (heaven and) earth: The significance of the intertextual link between Jeremiah 27:5 and 32:17. Old testam. essays [online]. 2014, vol.27, n.2, pp.637-650. ISSN 2312-3621.

This paper explores the significance of the intertextual link between Jer 27:5 and 32:17 for the portrayal of the prophet in his prayer in Jer 32:17-25. Through the reference to Yahweh as the creator who had made the heaven and the earth, Jer 32:17 recalls Yahweh's decision to hand all earth into the power of Nebuchadnezzar mentioned in 27:5. Jeremiah's purchase of ancestral land as a sign-act proclaiming the restoration of the land should therefore not be placed on the same level as the acts of an optimistic prophet such as Hananiah. However, any doubt with regard to Jeremiah's faith in Yahweh was unfounded.
